Can't possibly be true

Some Jewish donors are telling fundraisers for Mitt Romney that while they like him, they'd rather open their wallets for the "Jewish candidate," Michele Bachmann, who they don't realize is actually a Lutheran, the New York Post reports.

"Some in Romney's camp have been wondering whether Bachmann and her allies are pushing the 'Jewish' rumor to help their own fund-raising... She has enjoyed strong popularity among Jewish voters and often talks about her stay on a kibbutz during the summer of 1974, when she was a teenager."

This demolishes numerous economic fairy tales about rational actors, not to mention stereotypes about how smart Jews are. Unless of course the Jewish donors are pulling Romney's leg, in accord with that other stereotype about how funny Jews are.
